Liki River Farm
The Liki River Farm covers approximately 150 hectares of which 25 acres are used for flower cultivation. Fair Trade workers at Liki Farm enjoy the benefit of Fair Trade standards including safe working conditions, fair minimum wages, protections against discrimination and community development funds via the Fair Trade premium.
Bulding Schools and Giving Scholarships
The workers of Liki River Farm decided to invest Fair Trade premium funds into the education of the children in their local community. A worker’s committee in charge of voting for and designing Fair Trade projects voted to use community development funds to repair the roof of the Muslim elementary school, construct classrooms at the Ngando and Ichuga elementary schools, and build an administrative building at Mukima elementary school. The group also allocated Fair Trade premiums to scholarships for workers’ children and community orphans.
Tree Seedlings Purchased
The Joint Body used Fair Trade premiums to purchase tree seedlings for planting in the community.
Training for the Joint Body
Fair Trade premiums funded administrative training sessions for workers that form part of the Joint Body - the group that is responsible for designing and implementing uses of Fair Trade premiums.
